    It helps load DVD's with swap magic, so you can play games on your ps2.

    ok, this is two in a row now. do a search!
    try looking here http://www.swapmagicfix.com
    if it is listed and you use swap magic, then you will need DVDLoader to play it.
    DVDLoader is a program they will load games that Swap Magic alone can not.
    Next i suppose you'll want to know how to use it, i'll save you the trouble of posting it 12 times.
    Put in Swap Magic DVD
    When it asks for a disc swap out for DVDLoader
    Then when it asks for a disc swap out for your back up game.

    Also not sure if it's only my version of ps2 SPCH(39001)#7, but TDK CD's suck for usage on ps2 from my epxperience.

    When you create a cdloader or dvdloader try not to use TDK CD's because they suck. The first time I tried I had to open my ps2 and wipe the lens like every other time when using TDK cd's.



    I found this on the net and it pretty much answers your question ;)


    cdloader should be burned to cd-r, it is used to load some games that won't work with swap magic cd or dvd alone,cdloader must be used in between swapping your swap magic cd for your backup.

    i.e., swap magic - cdloader - backup

    some games will require a TOC refresh, this is where you insert an original ps2 game with a higher TOC than the backup you are loading, most people use GTA vice city, as it has a very high TOC and it's a game that most people own.

    dvdloader

    dvdloader is the same program as cdloader, but it should be burned to dvd-/+r, and should be used with swap magic dvd in the same way as cdloader.

    sm3dvd (thanks olsfan)

    this is basically swap magic cd converted to dvd, and again this is used for the same purpose as cd/dvdloader, but I find I never need to use a TOC refresh with it, so it cuts out a swap for games that need it.

    you can get either CDLoader or DVDLoader here:

    they are the same except DVD loader you burn to a DVD and CD loader to a CD-R
    I like DVDLoader better because my PS2 loads them better than CD's
